The International Language Program (ILP) focuses on helping children in foreign countries learn the English language through a friendly and fun atmosphere. Participants have the life-changing experience of living abroad for a semester in Suzhou, China. They get to experience the culture authentically, create relationships with the local people, and grow personally in countless ways. Instead of merely touring and traveling, participants also give something to the community they reside in. ILP classes provide an opportunity for children to become functionally fluent in English which opens doors for them the rest of their lives.
Interns with the International Language Program engage in a variety of activities where they help teach younger students English. The interns are assigned to teach English, read to children, create and facilitate workshops, as well as participating in school events and conferences. The will also help create lesson plans and work with full-time staff to fulfill other organization needs.
